Laura Calmore of France Digitale : “#JouerCollectif . That’s our DNA….”

September 15, 2015, France Digitale opens up the Carreau du Temple in Paris, starting from 13h, for the third France Digitale Day, a meeting that became a must for all players in the digital ecosystem. More than 2,000 people are expected. A day that promises to be rich in debates, experiences and meetings with entrepreneurs, investors, large groups and without forgetting the politicians. To talk a little bit more about this event, we met Laura Calmore, marketing and event manager at France Digitale.

Saas Invaders : Could you remind us in few words what is France Digitale?

Laura Calmore : An association that brings together the champions of digital entrepreneurship: start-ups with strong growth plans and potential investors (venture capitalists and business angels).

Tell us the “pitch” of France Digitale Day 2015!

I can only quote Olivier & Marie (NDLD : Olivier Mathiot et Marie Ekeland) on this, what else can I pitch besides : “In its third year, France Digitale set its sights even higher for digital progress, startups and attracting talent and business to our nation.”Battle for Greatness” will be a major event carved into stone because on September 15, we all come together (entrepreneurs, investors and thinkers of our time) to collectively write the real political program for France’s digital glory.

We are inviting ourselves to the table and into the political agenda of the 2017 political candidates, just like we did at the time of the pigeons (#geonpi). For those currently in office, they’re starting their great sprint for the last 18 months of their term;and for everyone else, this is their moment to debate big ideas that will shape the future and leave small political squabbles behind.”
